Scouting for a New Fishing Mark

In this vlog I venture further away from my usual spots in an effort to identify some new and interesting fishing marks. What I’m going to be looking for are marks with access to deeper water. So, come along with me and let’s see what we can find!

Episode 84: Basking Sharks with Natasha Phillips and Amy Garbett

In this episode, I had the pleasure to talk once again with scientists from SeaMonitor project. This time our guests were Dr Natasha Phillips and Dr Amy Garbett. Our conversation was focused on Basking Sharks but while at it we discussed a whole range of other subjects as well, like genetic connectivity, biotelemetry and bioinformatics. There is nothing like a conversation with scientists who are genuinely passionate about their work. If you are interested in marine biology, sharks and science you can’t afford to miss this episode!

Episode 83: Tracking Seals with Sam L Cox

This is yet another episode of the podcast where we talk about seals. This time I hit you with a healthy dose of unbiased, evidence-based knowledge. Actually, that’s not me doing the hitting but our guest Dr Sam L Cox who is a quantitative ecologist and researcher for the SeaMonitor project. In our conversation, we discuss the behaviour and spatial ecology of harbour seals which are tracked using GPS tags glued to their head. But that’s not all, Sam has done a lot of research studying other, more exotic, species of seals, like elephant seals. So, we discuss that too! We also touch on the anthropogenic impact on seals and mobile marine predators in general. This is one interesting episode. Enjoy!

The Importance of the Outdoors

Another short lockdown vlog where I pretend to go fishing but in reality just make an excuse to get outside and get some fresh air. If you enjoy these short videos then please leave me a comment and share the video with your friends!
